ROAR's purpose is to promote racing ,not seperate the great drivers from the rest of us so they can race by themselves. I don't think long term any manufacturer would suport that system once the buying public was no longer as involved in the race.

You obviously didn't read my posts completely, and missed several of my points. Do you as a 'hack' feel you have what it takes to win one of these events? If not then what would be the difference if the existing races stayed the same, same titles, same championships, only the events were grouped together to form a series to crown the ROAR national champion for the guys that could attend them all or most of them?
